Blogging for Endometriosis – Week 2 Giveaways!

We are already into week 2 of Blogging for Endometriosis! A HUGE thank you to everyone who has been participating so far as I know I have gotten so much out of reading your posts and chatting with you on the event Facebook page!

The week 1 giveaway winners have been drawn! Congrats to Nikki and Cheryl! Expect an email shortly 🙂

And now it is time to another round of giveaways courtesy of our wonderful sponsors and we will have 3 winners for this group of giveaways! Our sponsors are so awesome!

 

Beautiful Awareness Jewellery

First up is a beautiful necklace and endometriosis charm from Seaview Jewellery! When I asked Zoe why she wanted she participate in Blogging for Endometriosis Awareness, she said, “I want to be involved in raising awareness for Endometriosis for my friend who has it. Also, as someone with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I know how important it is to raise awareness of chronic and invisible illnesses; not only so people understand what we go through, but to raise more money for research.” I wish there were more people like her out there!

These are the two beautiful pieces up for grabs:

Endometriosis Charm / Spoonie Necklace

I personally own the Spoonie necklace and love it! I get a lot of questions about what it symbolizes (I guess “normal” people don’t walk around with spoons hanging from their necks) and I love having the opportunity to share The Spoon Theory and a little bit about invisible illness! One winner will receive these two beautiful items!

The next giveaway is courtesy of FJJ Creations! The tagline on Jen’s About page states, “Life is more than you can obtain for yourself. It’s about how much you give back.” What a beautiful mission statement and I am incredibly thankful for her generous donation to our endometriosis awareness campaign!

Look at all of these beautiful goodies!

    Hiii. I am not just raising awareness during the month, but every month is awareness month for me. Endo is such a big part of my life. I wear my endo hope necklace by FJJ Creations with pride. I will be purchasing from her again, when I have some spare money as I have just lost my job due to ill health. Follow me on twitter or facebook. CharlieEndo_fighter or Charlie marie kenealy. Thanks. P.s your blog is amazing <3

    spreading the word by having my daughters read the information on this blog, and talking about how this may effect them

  3. Alison Gross says:

    I sent my story to @tulip_online. I also am sharing info on Facebook and Twitter from endometriosis foundation (@endofound), the CEC – Center for Endometriosis Care, and the endometriosis research center (@endorescenter). I’m also blogging with the women on this site and talking to my friends and family members about endo!

    (not sure if i’m eligible but LOVE the spoon necklace).

    today’s “work” — i actually sent a note to the Exec Director at this small, free, local paper. i’d done a few things for them before and just got the go-ahead to report on an event that i covered last year. Anyway, as we emailed, i suggested he ask a local GYN to cover Endo Awareness Month and offered to write a piece from the patient view. Hoping he at least does the Dr part

  5. LOVE the spoons necklace! I plan on talking to my friends & family about endometriosis as one of the chronic illnesses that needs more awareness along with the chronic illnesses/pain that I have, which includes Crohn’s Disease and chronic migraines. All of these illnesses have similarities with emotional/physical pain, financial stress, fatigue, etc. and I hope to be more educated about endometriosis in particular in case I have a girlfriend who is having symptoms and would want to encourage them not to be embarrassed to get checked out for sure. It’s a lot more common than we think.

    That spoonie necklace is the best chronic illness awareness jewellery I’ve seen! I’m actually spreading awareness in a lot of ways this month (and always), so I can’t just stick to one. To kick off the month I did my first ever 5km run for endometriosis awareness, something I couldn’t have imagined doing a year ago when I was diagnosed. I also blog about endometriosis and my experiences with that, and my friends and family read that and hopefully learn some more about endo. I’ve been writing in to magazines, asking them to include an article on endometriosis in their magazines so other women won’t have to wait so long to be diagnosed (and one of them has picked up the story!). As part of the endometriosis support group I am part of, we are organising a fundraising night of pampering later this month.

    On top of all that, I always am honest about endometriosis whenever it comes up. If I have a day off work, I let my employer know why, or if I have to stop when I’m walking because of a stabbing pain, I let people know why. No wonder I’m tired… I think I need to learn how to pace myself.

  7. Hi, I have just been diagnosed with endometriosis on Friday 8th March by having a laparoscopy. I have been trying to share with all my friends and family about endometriosis as almost all of them had never heard of it. I have also been sending letters to my previous GP’s and consultants who had tried to tell me I did not have endometriosis to educate them and informing them that scans are not enough. I have been connecting with all the lovely endosisters on Twitter who have been so brilliant and helped me not to feel alone as I have no one else near me who suffers with the disease.
    Although I have not been able to do much because of my recent surgery as i have been quite sore I hope educating my friends and family have helped.
    I also have a friend in the USA who has simply put up with the pain she has now told me that from hearing that I got checked she is going to see her doctor to get more answers.
